The Red Sox now have offers on the table to Jon Lester and Pablo Sandoval. Will the two free agents take the deals?

According to ESPNBoston's Gordon Edes and other baseball reporters, the Sox made the offer to Lester before he headed out to Chicago to visit with the Cubs. Lester is reported to be visiting the Atlanta Braves tomorrow.

Sandoval, the free agent third baseman who helped the Giants win the World Series, has visited Boston and now has a Sox offer.

On another hot stove baseball note, the Sox have claimed 1B-3B Juan Francisco off waivers from the Blue Jays. He played in 106 games and hit 16 homers with a .220 batting average. He is a lefthanded hitter.
